There always seems to be a speed issue when accessing a wireless network in a public place. But thanks to research from MIT, you may soon say goodbye to slow coffeehouse Wi-Fi. Researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) have developed MegaMIMO 2.0, a Wi-Fi system that is three times faster than traditional Wi-Fi and has double the range.
Wi-Fi speeds are slow in public places due to interference. If a lot of people are trying to connect to the same internet connection, the speed practically slows to a halt because there isn't enough wireless spectrum available for people to get their data quickly. MegaMIMO 2.0 is designed to juggle multiple access points at once without creating interference. It does this all while remaining on the same frequency.
